Proceedings of Recreation Management Institute (1st, Texas A & M University, September 24 - October 6, 1967).
Clarke, Marion L., Ed.; Crysdale, Richard A., Ed.
An intensive 2-week recreation management institute plan, with proceedings of 20 sessions, is presented in this 1967 document. The primary goal of the institute was to provide systematic methods for (1) upgrading and improving the recreation knowledge of middle management recreation personnel and (2) developing or refining their recreation knowledge and management skills. Among the discussions, it is noted that the natural resources base for recreation is in a period of tremendous change resulting in a need for education in recreation. Due to urbanization, knowledge of how to use the country properly is disappearing from the American mind, and this directly affects the aims and performance in public service. In addition, there tends to be little communication with the majority of people about problems related to recreation programs, and it is therefore recommended that initiative be taken by those in the field of recreation resources to work with school systems in devloping conservation programs and to create an awareness of the importance of the American landscape as a basis for a worthwhile American society.
